Kinky Curly Knot Today? Love it or hate it?
 
I've been doing CG since mid October, and I just bought some KCKT. Every time I have used it my hair is nasty. floppy and gross, just flat and almost...I guess maybe over-conditioned?
Am I the only one? like, everyone I've read about loves it? What could be the thing making my hair hate it? Does anyone else find it too heavy? I dont know, it's so weird. I love the KCCC!!
Argh. $12 down the drain.angry9:

There's nothing worse than money down the drain, is there? I love it and for me it feels very light-but then I don't use much. Maybe a quarter size for my whole head of hair. And when I use my SM smoothie as a base styler I skip the knot today usually.

Actually if I keep falling in love with my smoothie I may not need the knot today anymore. But I'll still love it. . .

I actually love this product..It took time for me to get use to and for my hair to get use to but the results are Wonderful! I have 3c/4a hair btw. I use it in my hair after I wash it which would be every week and I got the product about a month ago.

I have a difficult time using the KCCC; Any tips/suggestions?

I'm surprised you find it too heavy. My hair is easily weighed down and I find KCKT the perfect weight. I don't really need it as a detangler because my hair can be detangled easily with most conditioners but I like it as a leave-in because it's so light and doesn't make my hair heavy and greasy like so many leavin-ins with oils and butters tend to do.

I'd suggest using a much smaller amount and see if that helps?

I love it too, it makes my curls so soft and bouncy.

Love it! Awesome for my fine, thinish 3b curls! Didn't know how to use it at first, but kept coming back to it, hoping for its elusive fab results...now, it's my HG leave in:) I have yet to find a LI that is so simple, yet sooo effective. All other "non-water based" leave ins pale in comparison, (they tend to be aloe based instead and my hair hates aloe left in:( ), so I must say I'm in love with it!!!

On the other hand, some low porosity curlies haven't had such great luck with kckt, but better luck with aloe or water based leave ins...hope this helps!

I tend to like products with moisturizing oils and butters like shea butter, KCKT doesn't have this stuff, but I still love it! :) It works really well for me, it's light, helps styling, smells fantastic, and my hair just seems to love the stuff. Also love the fact that is is humectant free.

Maybe you could use a smaller amount of KCKT :)

NvmbrCurlss 02-03-2013 10:17 PM

^^^oooh, yeah, I almost forgot! Humectant/glycerin free!!! I'm gonna use this tomorrow! Kinda excited!

Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove

It's the only thing that gets my knots out.

Aqua_Lily 02-03-2013 11:32 PM

^ooooooh yes! BEST DETANGLER I EVER TRIED!!!!!!!!! :D

Not moisturizing enough for my hair. May be a porosity thing?? My hair never tangles unless I use an ingredient it doesn't like.

Laura Lee 02-04-2013 07:46 AM

It was one of the first things I got after discovering this site and I still use it almost daily! It's light enough that my hair doesn't get weighed down but provides a nice base layer for products.

Ditto. I didn't like it. I ended up swapping it.

Hootenanny 02-04-2013 08:45 AM

It doesn't seem to be working well for me, and I'm trying to identify what the problem is. When I use it, my hair is very weighed down, and I only use a tiny bit (and then rinse most of that out). I'm low porosity, so that could be an issue, or maybe there's a problem ingredient. I'm also still fairly new at all of this, so maybe I'm doing something wrong? Could others say how much you use and how you apply it?

Starmie 02-04-2013 08:47 AM

I like it too but it doesn't play nice with CIAB so I don't use it any more. I hated the KCCC I bought it with though.

I use the KCCC on 50% dry hair. I do all my other stuff, plop, then put it in, then diffuse. Thats been the best results for me on the KCCC.

Houseofcurls 02-04-2013 08:51 AM

Hmm, I have the WORST time with tangles, but the KCKT helped the tangles when I used it. However I did use it with my SM smoothie, and maybe (judging from responses) they do not play well. Hmmm. I think I also maybe used too much.
So I have KCCC and SM SMoothie, so maybe I'll try the KCKT with just the KCCC today and see what happens.

Does anyone know how long home made FSG lasts with just the gel, no preservatives? in the fridge? I thought at first maybe mine was bad, I think its 2-3 weeks old. I left it out Sat and Sun and the hair was still bad. angry9:

redcelticcurls 02-04-2013 09:26 AM

Nothing works for everyone, no matter what anyone might tell you. It may need tweaking, or it just might not be a good fit.

I use about 1/4 to 1/3 bottle at a time, but I'm coarse and porous. I never get weighed down.
